The Government Medical Officers Association(GMOA) has requested Ministry Of Health to inquire and punish  48 Registered Medical Practitioners(RMO's) who had taken three year study leave with full pay from the Ministry Of Health in 1998 to study in Saint Petersburgh Medical Faculty in Russia but  completed the degree in short period of time.the said medical practitioners were found as only been in Russia for two weeks to six month period instead of three full years according to GMOA.

The 48 Registered Medical Practitioners were engaged in Private Practice in Sri Lanka on the three years they have received as full pay study leave instead of studying Russia for the full period as alleged by GMOA President Dr.Anuruddha Padeniya .however they have provided a false degree certificate that stating they have completed three year degree course at saint petersburgh medical college dr.padeniya has said.

As these Registered Medical Practitioners known as apothecaries misused state funds by providing false details of their degree an impartial inquiry should be held regarding this  matter GMOA President  has stressed.

The said Medical Practitioners have also applied for registration in Sri Lanka Medical Council but it has been stalled due to the objections raised by the GMOA.
